About Shannon Smith Events & design


Rose', chilled, please.

Bows. I’m talking crisp, symmetrical and satin.  Hold on, give me a   minute.…ahhh. 

Oh!  And lived-in, cozy-cozy loose and loungey pajamas.  Is loungey even a word?

These are just a few of my favorite things and at the {HEART} of my love for designing weddings.

So, you’re thinking, ‘”well, what does that have to do with planning my wedding?”

Simply put, my mission for your magical day begins with your favorite things.  

All the little details of your life that made your beloved choose you, can and will be a part of the planning & design.

we believe that LOVE TAKES TIME

From defining your style and personality to selecting the venue and vendors, it’s a comprehensive collaboration that culminates in a Shannon Smith Event.   Creativity is a gift and it’s mine to give to you.  With a discerning eye for design, my couples see their love story come to life!

we believe in Unfiltered Joy


The moment a dad lays eyes on his daughter in her dress... Unfiltered joy. 

The loving glance of a son to his mom,  while waiting for his bride... Unfiltered joy.

That long awaited moment a couple sees each other...  Unfiltered joy.

But, for me, it’s the moment when I sneak my bride and groom into their reception, before anyone else is in there.  A first look...for their eyes only. Letting them drink in the details of the day we’ve been planning for months.  That’s {my} UNFILTERED JOY.

My heart and passion is to serve, for the sake of a lasting love story and it’s my prayer that I help you begin a marriage,  that’s even more beautiful than your wedding.
